1972 GMC 2500 Whats it worth?

While I was out working today I came across a guy with a 1972 GMC 3/4 ton 2wd long bed. I asked him what he was doing with it and he said he is short on cash and needed to sell it. He said it runs but the tranny does'nt seem to work too well after he towed it on a car dolly with the driveline still in. The truck has a pretty straight body, couple of dents nothing too serious. The truck is from NV so it has NO RUST.

Anyway I have too many projects and would like to help the guy out so he can pay his gas bill ( I have a propane company). I was wondering what you guys think its worth so he doesn't get taken. Maybe someone here might want it.
Thanks

John

Oh yeah it has a 350/350 and I think a dana 60 rear

I paid $500 for my 75 Dodge extended cab camper special. I guess it depends what YOU think is a fair price?? I bought the shell of a race car, 64Chevelle ht 2dr. and I paid $2k for it, I found a 65 Chevelle minus the drive train and paid $700 for it, it all depends what YOU are willing to pay. I don't know of any place to get the fair market of an older vehicle.

If you can get it for a good price you better snag it. '67-'72's are the hot item now. Look in any truck mag and that is what is popular. One of the mags last month had an article on shortening the longbed. Keep us posted.

I paid $450 for my 69 ton truck in about 1982 or 83. It is a short bed and the bed was unusable rotted off. My truck was a 6 cylinder straight shift 3 speed on the column. I really don't care much for the big wheels and tires on the ton trucks as you can see from my gallery I even got rid of the 6 lug wheels on my truck. I like the looks of the long bed fleetside trucks and if the cab corners and floor is in good shape it could bring 1k to 2k to the right person maybe more.

Thanks for the replies. The truck is the original color, two tone red with the white center. The bed is in perfect shape, the tail gate has a few rust spots in the lower part of it. The interior is ok the seat is worn out but the door panels and headliner and stuff are still in good shape. It has a "sierra" badge on the rear corners of the bed. The pedals have no wear on them either. The horn button on the steering wheel is missing too. The truck is in pretty good shape though for a 30ish year old truck. Like I said its an AZ-NV truck, cars don't rust here like they do back east.

I will tell him to ask around $1500 or so. What do you think?

Thanks,

John
